    This my current preferred watch, I've had it for about 5 years now but it still looks great and still gets many compliments. I especially like the sapphire back that allows you to see the movement, it's mesmerising! It have a Valjoux 7750 movement which is common and well proven but it is modified in-house.

    I am putting too many miles on the 400 just going up and down the A3 so will be using it as well so wanted something reasonable. We did look at second hand but this was pre reg and such a deal it wasn't worth it.

    I tried that watch Phil and it's too big for me. Seriously tempted by one of these though...

    Imitation is highest form of flattery...or so they say. There is hardly a glut of Esprits on the road. People talking and even copying them may well raise the regard in which the real cars are held. buddsy

    So as some folks may have seen KT had recently invested in R&D at Mira testing ideas, options, and designs for new aero. This is their first option, a combined road/track wing which offers plug and play install and reversible back to standard. Seems to have proven downforce capabilities and comes with a 'safe' for boot mounting line front KT. This is the design @TBD has on his car and I hope when he gets time could take some real life shots from different angles as would love to see more of this wing. I'm in two minds about the profile hence the ask for more pics Option Two the full track version will be chassis mounted and I believe have a straighter profile to match the wider width. Further info hopefully in the coming weeks likely after their testing at Spa in March!

    Met Nigel Mansell at the track today. His boys are racing the Champ Car Atlantic series and they are at Laguna Seca doing some testing. Wish I had had my car but still finishing up the details on the rebuild. I did bring the Lotus (big) book out for him to sign. I knew he had a turbo Esprit as a "company" car while driving for Lotus and he said he thoroughly enjoyed driving it. Shared a funny story of him and Colin getting in trouble with the local authorities around town. Asked if it "still gets the birds", which of course I had to say "yes". Super cool guy for sure. Jeff

    Buying used, for me it was a 911 or Evora 2+2 as the top contenders, because of the flexibility 2+2 gives for school runs. Evora won on steering feel and looks. My next Evora will probably be a 410, as I need rear seats less than I need nice carbon bits and racier set up

    When I saw the renderings of the 380 Race I loved the look so got busy earlier today. Not finished but am so pleased with the look I had to share it with you guys, Next is to finish the N/S headlight then apply the wrap to the painted section between the roof and engine cover. I will also add the door and rear quarter decals that appear on the 380 race Progress so far

    Nah. Although possibly counter-intuitive, it's correct. In nearly 40 years, I've never seen that happen. I shall add it to my list of Interesting Things for this vehicle.

    This one made me giggle. Explains a few things!

    Cheers Colin. I have just been and measured mine. The EVORA is 18cm long so no change, the T is 25mm high on the S1 Evora, so its no optical illusion, it is a larger L O T U S

    Here's my 1990 Stevens N/A at Goodwood Circuit plus a couple of interior shots. It's completely standard spec. Ask if you need anything specific!

    A really nice cosy evening with friends, an open fire, car chat and good beer. Light relief from a hectic life

    Another Grey 400 here - I think it looks great with Red calipers, black pack, black forged wheels and Red racing stripe (this clearly makes it go faster!).
